I have an MBA from Symbiosis University, India and a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Southern California, Los Angeles. I used to work on technology, consulting and research and development roles for start-ups to fortune 500 companies before starting on my Ph.D at the U. My current work is in Nanotechnology with focus on Microfluidics and Nano-sensors and their commercialization. I have worked on three early stage start-ups, which made it to the top 10 at the Utah Entrepreneurship Challenge 2012 & 2013. My interests lie in turning nanotechnology into marketable products.
